ELMA, N.C. — Two North Carolina parents face charges after two of their three children allegedly tested positive for methamphetamine, according to WRAL.

Alison Louise Hill, 24, and Rufus Charles Futch, 50, both of Selma, are charged with two counts each of misdemeanor child abuse.

The girls are 8 months and 18 months. Officials said they were tested for meth after the Department of Social Services requested deputies help with an investigation at the family home.

The tests showed high levels of the illegal drug, according to Johnston County officials. The suspects were arrested earlier this months and are out on bond.
